December 30 1862 Tuesday

Sherman’s Yazoo River Expedition

Forrest’s First West Tennessee Raid

Morgan’s Second Kentucky Raid

Carter’s Upper Tennessee Valley Raid

Stuart’s Fairfax Raid

Stones River Campaign

Grant’s Central Mississippi Campaign

Arkansas. Incident at La Grange.

Kentucky. Skirmish at Springfield involving Brigadier-General John Hunt Morgan.

New Haven, Kentucky, also known as Rolling Fork. Confederate Brigadier-General John Hunt Morgan sent three companies of the 9th Kentucky Cavalry (approximately 225 men) and one howitzer to destroy the bridge across the Rolling Fork River at New Haven. When they entered New Haven, they encountered Company H and staff of the 78th Illinois Infantry (approximately 95 men) guarding a stockade. The Confederates demanded the surrender of the stockade (Fort Allen) and, when it was refused, they began to shell the fort. The 12-pounder howitzer was ineffective and the Confederates attacked on foot and horseback but were driven back by heavy musketry with at least three men wounded. They left and met up with Morgan’s main body between Springfield and Lebanon.

Louisiana. A reconnaissance sent upriver by Union Major-General Nathaniel Prentiss Banks from Baton Rouge turned back after finding unexpectedly strong batteries emplaced on the bluffs at Port Hudson. Reports suggested that 10,000 Confederates were stationed there with 21 heavy guns.

Mississippi. Union troops at Chickasaw Bluffs under Major-General William Tecumseh Sherman endured heavy rain and cold weather as they awaited orders to attack the Vicksburg outer defences again. During the night, Sherman had concluded that further attacks would be costly and fruitless. Although the naval squadron supplied shore bombardment and created diversionary movements, the Union troops now faced the arrival of more Confederate reinforcements and were compelled to withdraw.

Sherman and Rear Admiral David Dixon Porter planned to launch a new joint attack on Drumgould’s Bluff, a mile to the northeast below Haines’ Bluff, with 10,000 men from Brigadier-General Frederick Steele’s division and Brigadier-General Stephen Gano Burbridge’s brigade. Sherman hoped that the steep bluffs would provide cover for his men as they advanced. It was imperative for the movement to be started in secrecy so that the Confederates would not shift any of their defensive forces from Chickasaw Bluffs to the new sector.

Tennessee. Skirmish at La Vergne

Tennessee. Skirmish at Jefferson.

Tennessee. Skirmishes at Parker’s Cross Roads and Red Mound,

Tennessee. Skirmish at Rock Spring.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Nolensville.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Clarksburg involving Confederate Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Tennessee. Skirmish at Huntingdon involving Confederate Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Blountsville, Tennessee. Union Brigadier-General Samuel Powhatan Carter’s raiders reached Blountsville by dawn. They captured the town’s military hospital and captured and paroled 30 Confederate prisoners. Carter regrouped and then started out for Union, to the east of Blountsville.

Carter’s Depot, Tennessee also known as Carter’s Station, or Carter Creek Station. About 150 men of Union Brigadier-General Samuel Powhatan Carter’s raiders headed for Carter’s Depot, also known as Carter’s Station, or Carter Creek Station. The depot was ten miles south of Union and stood at the northern end of the 400 foot Watauga Bridge. Carter’s Depot was a major refuelling and telegraph stop on the railroad. A company of the 62nd North Carolina Infantry with 130 men and commanded by Colonel Robert G A Love was responsible for the defence of the depot.

When the Union men entered the town in the late afternoon, they skirmished briefly but a cavalry charge broke the Confederate line and forced them to retreat. The Union raiders burned the railroad depot and supplies and torched the bridge, which collapsed with a Confederate soldier trapped on it.

Union, Tennessee. Union Brigadier-General Samuel Powhatan Carter and his main body of raiders continued their march to the town of Union. The Confederate garrison in Union was composed of more of the 62nd North Carolina, commanded by Major B G McDowell. McDowell left the town to investigate rumours that the Union force was heading towards the town and was captured. When Carter arrived at the town, the Confederate garrison surrendered immediately. Carter’s men set fire to the 600-foot bridge over the Holston River. They then destroyed the town’s railroad depot, a nearby wagon bridge, three railroad cars filled with supplies, telegraphic equipment, and more than 700 muskets and rifles.

Tennessee. By nightfall, two-thirds of Union Major-General William Starke Rosecrans’ army was in position along the Nashville Turnpike near Murfreesboro. When it was joined by the remainder the following morning it would number about 45,000 men. Confederate General Braxton Bragg had about 38,000 men already on the field, and on both sides of Stone’s River near Murfreesboro. Bragg was helped by cavalry raids striking the Union lines of communication which pinned down large garrisons from Rosecrans’ army. Part of Rosecrans’ reluctance to move from Nashville was the inexperience of his cavalry forces in comparison to their Confederate counterparts, whereas Confederate Brigadier-General Joseph Wheeler and 2,500 of his men were free to ride around the Union army, destroying supply wagons and capturing reserve ammunition in Rosecrans’ trains.

Rosecrans’ Army of the Cumberland moved into line of battle two miles northwest of Murfreesboro to face the Confederate Army of Tennessee. The two armies were in parallel lines about four miles long, oriented from southwest to northeast. Bragg’s left flank was weak at the start but Rosecrans did not know the full disposition of Bragg’s forces because of the skilful screening by the Confederate cavalry. Each commander devised a similar plan for the following day: to envelop the enemy’s right, break into his rear and cut him off from his base. Rosecrans ordered his men to be ready to attack after breakfast, but Bragg ordered an attack at dawn.

Bragg placed Lieutenant-General Leonidas Polk’s Corps on the west side of the river to the left and Lieutenant-General William Joseph Hardee’s Corps on the right in the east. Brigadier-General John Porter McCown’s division was in reserve. Bragg had expected Rosecrans to attack on 30 December but when that attack did not materialise, he decided to drive forward with Hardee’s Corps and the cavalry under Brigadier-General John Archibald Wharton deep into the Union rear. He began moving the bulk of Hardee’s corps across the river from his right to his left flank in preparation for the next morning’s attack. This left only Major-General John Cabell Breckinridge’s division on the east side of the river, holding an area of high ground north of Murfreesboro.

For his part, Rosecrans planned to move Major-General Thomas Leonidas Crittenden’s Corps across the river to attack the heights east of the river, which would then become an excellent artillery platform from which to bombard the entire Confederate line west of Stone’s River. Crittenden, who would be facing Breckinridge’s Division on the Union left, failed to notify Major-General Alexander McDowell McCook (placed on the Union right) of these planned movements. McCook, anticipating that the next day would start with a major attack by Crittenden west of the river, planted numerous campfires along and beyond his front, hoping to deceive the Confederates as to his strength on that flank, and to disguise the fact that his flank was not anchored on a defensible obstacle. Overall Creek was too distant for flank protection. Union Major-General George Henry Thomas, in the centre, was ordered to make a limited diversionary attack and to act as the pivot for Crittenden’s left wheel. The armies bivouacked overnight only 700 yards apart.

Tennessee. Confederate Major-General Joseph Wheeler continued his raid around the Union army. About noon they reached La Vergne and burned Union Major-General Alexander McDowell McCook’s Corps supply train of 300 loaded wagons and captured 700 to 800 prisoners. Later in the day, Wheeler reached Nolensville where they captured a third Union wagon train carrying ammunition and medical supplies. They captured more wagons and paroled more Union prisoners at Rock Spring before resting.

Tennessee. Confederate Brigadier-General Nathan Bedford Forrest paused after crossing the Obion River and resumed his march towards Huntingdon and Clarksburg. He evaded one brigade of the pursuing columns of Union Brigadier-General Jeremiah Cutler Sullivan, led by Colonel John Wallace Fuller (1/8/XVI), as it passed across his front at Clarksburg. He passed behind the rear of the column and headed for Parker’s Cross Roads.

Virginia. Union expedition from Falmouth to Warrenton began.

Virginia. Union expedition from Potomac Creek to Ellis’ Ford and Richards’ Ford on the Rappahannock River.
